2018 EEOC Wage Data Due May 31, 2019 - Greater Cincinnati Automobile Dealers Association

2018 EEOC Wage Data Due May 31, 2019

Additional 2018 and 2017 Data Due September 30, 2019

Dealers with 100 or more employees are subject to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s (EEOC) EEO-1 Survey filing mandate. The EEOC enforces federal laws that make it illegal to discriminate against a job applicant or employee because of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability or genetic information. The EEO-1 Survey for 2018 data is due by May 31, 2019, and must include demographic data on race, gender and ethnicity by job category (information known as “EEO-1 Survey Component 1 data”).

In addition, the Federal District Court for the District of Columbia recently ruled that additional data for calendar years 2018 and 2017 must be filed by September 30, 2019. Known as “EEO-1 Survey Component 2 data,” these additional filings must include employee W-2 wage and hours worked information set out in 12 specified pay bands. Important: the EEOC intends to open by mid-July a portal for Component 2 data; NADA will notify dealers when that happens.

Last week, the U.S. Department of Justice filed a notice to appeal the District Court’s ruling requiring the Component 2 data. However, since the District Court’s ruling has yet to be stayed, NADA suggests that for now EEO-1 filers should assume that they will have to file Component 2 data by the September 30, 2019 deadline.
